      • Tread Ring Too Thick

      Best Uses

        Comments about General Brand 37mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood:

        Works great, and I purchased an extra. The only issue with it, the tread ring is too wide/thick. I can catch tread ring intrusion into the frame, with my Olympus/Zuiko 14-42mm Micro 4/3 lens. This does not cause too many problems, once the lens has been dialed out to about 16-17mm. It serves my needs well. This hood allows much better access to both the lens cap and filters than the ridged plastic hood sold by Olympus. This hood would rate a 5, if the thread ring were not so thick. It's a great buy considering the ridged plastic hood, sold by Olympus, cost substantially more.

        Comments about General Brand 37mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood:

        This is an "OK" lens hood. It shows in the corners in some of my pictures which I do not like. It collapses to easily so a slight bump on it folds in which can be good and bad. It is a good quality just not exactly what I was needing.

        Use on my Olympus 17mm F2.8 lens

            Comments about General Brand 37mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood:

            I use this collapsable rubber lens hood on my Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm F2.8 lens.

            It works well for both reducing flare as well as for protecting the lens. When the hood is collapsed, the lens is compact for storage.

            I use a 37mm Tiffen filter on my lens. This hood is mounted on the filter. Thankfully the combination of filter and hood do not cause vignetting on my 17mm F2.8 lens.

            Low cost addition to Olympus 45mm lens

                Comments about General Brand 37mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood:

                Since the Olympus MFT 45mm lens doesn't come with a hood, I decided I needed one that was just basic and was not expensive. This lens hood is exactly what I was looking for. The Olympus lens cap will fit the inside of the hood so both can be used at the same time. One suggestion: fold the hood down to minimum size when the lens is in a bag or case. This will keep it from being deformed while in storage.

                    Comments about General Brand 37mm Collapsible Rubber Lens Hood:

                    Rubber lens hoods are great
                    1 they fold down around hood when not needed. take less room
                    2 they screw in and don't fall off
                    3 they are cheap. I buy 2 at a time
                    4 i can use constantly as they are less obtrusive.when folded back
                    5 easily packed fold to the size of a filter
